You know how it is, best of intentions, there will be no leftovers, right? NEVER has that been true at my place. And to be honest the leftovers are great on the 26th. Awesome on the 27th. Then they wear very thin from there on in. But have no fear! Here are 6 yummy ways with Christmas leftovers that will make sure you gobble them all up!
Chicken and asparagus pastries (use turkey!)
In first place, I have to call on these Chicken and Asparagus Pastries and the reason for that? Well, they are freezable! You can use leftover turkey to replace the chicken and they taste just amazing! Make a batch of these and you’ve effectively bought yourself another month the get that turkey gobbled up.
Easiest ever ham and cheese scrolls
Easiest ever ham and cheese pizza scrolls are an important second place, they are freezable, they are delicious and best of all, they are perfect to take to a New Years Eve Party without looking like leftovers! Now that’s versatile!
Beef and veggie noodle salad (use turkey instead!)
In third place, I find that this noodle salad is amazing with leftover turkey! Just mix and load with veggies and you’ve got the perfect dinner for hot weather. The turkey basically replaces any protein, you could use this salad with leftover chicken too, it’s really versatile, so don’t let the name fool you.
Ham and green veg fritters
These ham and veggie fritters were designed last year with Christmas leftovers in mind, and are ideal for ham. If your kids struggle with veggies, then these are an awesome way to hide some in their dinner.
Basil chicken pasta sauce (use your turkey!)
This super sneaky chicken and basil pasta sauce recipe is just as good with turkey as it is with chicken. it’s a veggie smuggler and a delicious one at that. We love this sauce and the kids have never noticed the spinach that is well disguised by the basil in the dish.
Sweet potato, bacon and leek quiche
I know ham and bacon are different things, but subbing leftover chopped up Christmas ham in this sweet potato, bacon and leek quiche means it won’t even taste like christmas ham. So this dish is ideal for when you’re already sick of the ham! Make this quiche and you can freeze any extra for about a month, or longer if vacuum sealed in slices. Perfect for the next month when you need an easy dinner.
